Learn about the short, medium and long term impacts of poor weaner management on flock productivity.
Develop a weaner management plan for your weaners, including setting a target weaning weight, target weights at key times and feeding options.
This practical workshop will help you identify key management strategies that will assist you in improving the performance of your Merino weaners, thereby optimising their performance in your flock for their lifetime.
Workshop attendees will calculate a target weaning weight for their weaners, set growth targets, and management strategies to maximise weaner performance and ultimately joining as hoggets.
BONUS SESSIONS 1. Overall the workshop will build in a drought resilience focus with bonus sessions on early weaning, feed budgeting and containment feeding. 2. Your local Rural Adversity Mental Health Program Coordinator will join us for a short session to provide some information around managing stress, looking after yourself, your family or a mate and what local services are available if you need support.
